NPP’s Bugri Naabu Expresses Personal Views, Not Party’s Official Position, says Director of Communications

Richard Ahiagbah, the Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has clarified that Bugri Naabu, the former Northern Region Chair of the NPP, expresses his personal opinions and does not represent the official stance of the party.

Ahiagbah emphasized that Bugri Naabu is an individual party member and does not hold a formal position within the NPP hierarchy. His views on national issues, therefore, do not reflect the official position of the NPP.

Ahiagbah’s comments were prompted by remarks made by Professor Ransford Gyampo of the University of Ghana during a discussion on TV3’s Key Points program on Saturday, September 2. Gyampo had been discussing the leaked audio recording made by Bugri Naabu, in which plans to remove the Inspector General of Police (IGP) were discussed.

In a tweet, Ahiagbah stated,

“This is a small note to straighten my Professor, Ransford Gyampo’s description of Mr. Bugri Naabu on TV3 Point Key. Please, Mr. Bugri Naabu is not a functionary of the NPP as claimed. Bugri Naabu is a private member of the NPP and a former Northern Regional Chairman of the party. In other words, his position or view on national issues cannot represent the corporate position or views of the NPP.”

Meanwhile, Professor Gyampo disagreed with the characterization of the current IGP, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, as the worst in the history of the Ghana Police Service. He described such a statement as a “palpable display of mental dementia” and voiced his confidence in the competence of individuals like Builsa North MP James Agalga and other committee members tasked with investigating key issues related to the police.

He further expressed hope that the committee would produce findings and recommendations that would address challenges facing the police force.

“I believe that any description of the current IGP as the worst in 31 years, in my view, is a palpable display of mental dementia,” Professor Gyampo concluded.
